We woke up at 3 a.m. and after the breakfast we left the Mischabelhütte a little before 4 a.m., direction Nadelhorn. I soon realised, that I forgot the headlamp, but I managed without it. After a while we put on our crampons and formed the rope teams and we slowly advanced over the glacier towards the saddle between our mountain and Ulrichshorn. From the saddle we simply followed the ridge all the way to the summit of Nadelhorn, 4327 m. We took a few photos on the top and then we returned back to Mischabelhütte on the same way. It didn't take long that we all regrouped, we took a group photo and returned back to Saas-Fee, where the bus picked us up and drove us back home. Another successful glacier course was behind us.
Previous courses: 2021 (Day 1 - 15380, Day 2 - 15381), 2016 (Day 1 - 13553, Day 2 - 13554), 2015 (Day 1 - 13189, Day 2 - 13190).
